    "Pretty good with organization but average with editing."

    March 4, 2012  |   By DC2349

    Version: Zoner Photo Studio Free 14.0.1.4

    Pros

    easy on the eyes with the dark background
    organizing pictures is pretty straightforward
    free is good
    keeps meta tags on your pictures
    it also picks up what Picasa has already stored on photos

    Cons

    space where you view your pictures to edit or to organize is smaller than I would have chosen
    editing of pictures is not as good as I have found with other free programs
    it has locked up my system once, which is really an improvement than what PSE does
    somewhat of a learning curve

    Summary

    It has proven to be very helpful with organizing my pictures. I don't use it as an editor because I have other programs I like that are easier to use and do a better job. I love the meta tagging it allows. I've not had it long enough to know as much about it as I need to but so far have found it suitable for what I need doing. I have also recommended it to others.

    "Good software but not my favourite"

    February 29, 2012  |   By singapurr

    Version: Zoner Photo Studio Free 14.0.1.4

    Pros

    Good set of tools for viewing, managing and editing photos
    Related adjustments are sensibly grouped for easy use
    Generous free features such as clone tool

    Cons

    No curves tool
    Few effects
    Neither a pro tool nor for beginners; I'm not sure it will be satisfying to either of those groups

    Summary

    If this were the only photo software in the world I could live with it. It has a generous range of features. However the reality is that there's freeware like the GIMP with a bigger feature set, for the "power users", and there's freeware like Picasa - more intuitive and easy to get started with... So in the end Zoner seems to be in a strange place, neither "pro" enough nor "idiot-proof" enough.

    "Free Serious Software"

    January 31, 2012  |   By Lloyd_Hayes

    Version: Zoner Photo Studio Free 14.0.1.4

    Pros

    As mentioned, it's free.
    Many serious tools to use. (Too many to mention all.)
    Ability to edit EXIF information.
    There is no time limit or restrictions on the free version.

    Cons

    Does not come with all of the features of the paid version.

    Summary

    I was pleasantly surprised by this software. This software is for serious photographers. In most cases they will upgrade to the paid version. However, if you are looking for software to augment your normal photo editing software, then this free version will fit the bill.
    Novices have complained about this software being too difficult to learn. I'm not a novice, but I have not noticed any problems.
